Carlington Bike Park

Created March 26, 2018
Help build a bike park for everyone! The bike park will be a place for kids and adults to have fun while learning to mountain bike.  

Centrally located on the the plateau of the Carlington Park Hill on City of Ottawa lands in central Ottawa, it will be free for usersto enjoy once it is built and is much more accessible than mountain bike trails in the woods. 

The City of Ottawa has committed to matching up to $153,000.   That means the city will match every dollar you contribute to the project.  Also, donations of $10 or more will receive a tax receipt. 

We are happy to announce that are the recipients of a $20,000 grant from Mountain Equipment Coop (MEC) and a $10,000 grant from the Ottawa Community Foundation and we are now getting closer to our fundraising goal. 

We need to raise another $30,000 to fund this project to build it in the summer of 2018! Now we need your help to make the project a reality!

The park is being professionally designed and built by Sentiers Boreals. Check out the design of the park ( http://bit.ly/CarlingtonBikePark) that will include 3 loops. A beginner loop for young children, an intermediate loop and an advanced loop that will let kids of all ages play together. We will work with natural ground features on the trail, as well as add wooden, rock and log structures to create an area that is safe and engaging for both adults and children. 

Safety is at the forefront of the design to ensure riders build skills and progress with minimal risk, away from traffic and other park users. Individuals, youth camps, schools and clubs will find the bike park to be a fun way to get people of all ages outdoors in an urban environment!
